    ISU-UCONN: The future of ISU in BIG EAST?!?

    This game being on national TV and if Iowa State keeps this game competitive and wins - I definitely see Iowa State not left out of an invite from Big East - that is, if BIG XII implodes.

    I also think scheduling UCONN can work to our advantage.

    I really think this Friday is the start of something big. What do you all think?

    As far as Big East teams not being an automatic BCS berth, well that can change - if BIG XII dissolves.

    The Big East does have an automatic BCS Berth.

    First, the Big East already has a BCS berth. Second, one game will have virtually zero impact on whether or not we get invited to the Big East. The game is important for ISU to move to 3-0 and build momentum for this season, but will have nothing to do with re-alignment.

    Yeah, why can't everyone just read the 11,000 comment thread before posting?

    I disagree. If ISU beats last years Big East champion, it can't hurt our case for belonging.

    except that this years UConn team isnt anywhere near as good as last years (even thought they were only 8-5)

    It'd be great for ISU to beat UCONN to improve to 3-0. That's it.

    It can't hurt ISU's case for belonging, but it won't help.

    It won't hurt but it won't help either. Realignment has very, very little to do with on-field success, and winning one game against a Big East opponent is not going to change anyone's mind one way or another.
